The Sentinel Buttress is really made up of a few walls. The Circus Wall faces north and hosts a lineup of routes that all North Carolina climbers should do. The center face of the buttress has a few wandery routes that are worth some time, even if you only use them as alternative ways to the Crows Nest. And although the Fire Wall is not considered to be part of the Sentinel, it is in fact the buttress's southern side.
Once you've taken the left onto the powerline road, walk for a few minutes until you see a park sign on the right pointing to the Sentinel Buttress trail. Turn right and head up the trail, following signs for the Sentinel Buttress. Once you get close to the wall, the trail splits and either heads left toward the Central Wall or right toward the Sentinel Buttress.
